And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
ART: Egon Schiele – The Radical Nude | The Courtauld Gallery | 23 Oct – 18 Jan 2015 (pictured)
An in-parts explicit exhibition of skin-baring naked pics, ‘The Radical Nude’ celebrates the revelatory work of very late Austrian expressionist painter Egon Schiele, who in his brief artistic lifetime became (and is still known as) one of the most significant figures in the development of modern art. Radical, dude. Details and tickets here.
COMEDY: Tom Wrigglesworth – Utterly At Odds With The Universe | Leicester Square Theatre | 23 Oct
Trailed by the mighty Mr Wrigglesworth himself (in his springtime chat with ThisWeek) as “80 minutes of hilarity, then ten minutes of an emotional free fall”, ‘Utterly At Odds…’ looks back on Tom’s relationship with his grandfather, incorporating poignant tapings of the two’s convos dating back to his childhood days. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: You Have To Forgive Me… | Ovalhouse | 23-25 Oct
Theatrical ideas man Brian Lobel’s ‘durational’ one-to-one show, in which he invites a single viewer to join him in bed and stream ‘Sex And The City’ for 45 mins. Apparently, it’s really an examination of intimacy, isolation and binge-watching, and also to a bid to trace the lasting significance of Carrie Bradshaw ten years on from the ‘SATC’ TV finale. Each performance will have an audience of one, and ‘pay what you like’ admission is only available to those that fill in, and pass, a 94-point questionnaire. Details here.
